A crazy day, chock full o’ tests of physical endurance, phone calls, emails, errands, reading, critiquing but, alas, no actual writing. Damn. I’ve been sitting on this pilot for over a week now. Time to get it done! Tomorrow, come hell or high water, I finally complete that elusive first draft. Best decant the Knob Creek tonight.
Another reminder that we’ve kicked off our Stark Trek (the original series) re-watch!
Next Wednesday, we’ll be reconvening to discuss the show’s first five episodes: The Man Trap, Charlie X, Where No Man Has Gone Before, The Naked Time, and The Enemy Within.
Yes, technically, The Cage and the original version of Where No Man Has Gone Before fall earlier in the chronology, but we’ll save those particular episodes for a later viewing.
So tell your friends! I’ll be sitting down to a back to back to back to back to back screening sometime this weekend.
Hey, while, you’re here, enjoy some pics of the gang…

Look at Bubba sitting on Akemi’s lap looking at you Joe. He is snickering and saying “she likes me better.” Great pictures gforce!
They’re so adorable. I love picks of the puppies!
Those are great pictures gforce!
gforce…cool pix. Love puppy pix and Joe’s crew is almost always ready to pose.
Started with the rewatch…got too many interruptions, but even so, the stories started to resurface. Gonna make this weekend – ME time! Watching marathon style and a platter of BBQ and sweet tater fries. Maybe some sriracha wings from a new BBQ place with somewhat of a retro name – Rock’N Ribs.
OR….I “could” try to cook something. Found a place with belly pork. I want to try to make Chinese style pot roast pork. ohhhhh, can taste it now.
oh well, decisions. Take out usually wins this kind of “problem.”
Oh…and I found a cherry Moscato at WalMarts. the price is right to give it a try. Cause if it is not good….not a problem.
ok, making myself hungry and we ain’t at the weekend yet.
Poor data signal ever but i see the crew pics good job Gforce. Good news you round the pilot draft.

We’re having similar food styles this weekend (if you go with the BBQ that is).
Barbara Lynn (who you all met at 1776) has just graduated with her 2nd Master’s degree (this one is in clinical psychological counseling), so we’re throwing her a graduation party. She’s invited 25 of her friends and we’ve put together a Diner-style menu that includes a smoked picnic butt (for pulled pork), burgers, brats, and hot dogs. I’ll also be smoking some ham hocks and sweet corn.
I didn’t get around to the butcher shop in McHenry (too much running around this week), so I’ll have to sample their pork bellies another time…maybe for July 4th.
I did make up some Carolina BBQ sauce and I bought some cheesy greasy-spoon diner-style squeeze dispensers. Maybe I should complete the look with Formica tables and checkered table-cloths. I’ve got the 50’s juke-box playlist already covered. 😉
I can see why ST:TOS wasn’t popular at the very beginning. If the “The Man Trap” is the first introduction you had to the show, you’d be wondering what the hell you’re watching. Who are these people? What organization do they work for? Where is that Spock guy from? Why is the camera work so dreadfully bad?
(Posting my thoughts now, b/c I’ll be travelling the Rockies in an RV with husband, dog and 2 kitties when Cookie does his review, and who knows if I’ll be in cell signal range.)
@Kathode where in the Rockies? I spent many years SW of Denver in the foothills.
Thanks for the wonderful pics gforce!
Love puppy pics.
